Calvin Love shares new single “Automaton”

Calvin Love shares new single "Automaton" from his upcoming album 'Super Future.'

Edmonton crooner and space/time traveler Calvin Love is back today with a new science fiction-laden single “Automaton.” Following “Daydream” and “I Wanna Know,” we now have the 3rd taste of Calvin’s forthcoming LP, Super Future. “Automaton” plays late summer knight-rider funk like a factory machine, while soul-drenched bass and electric guitars chase each other in flirtatious dialogue. Calvin Love’s reedy tenor phases in the same atmospheric register as age-old synthesizers, singing: “Now off in the distance, her machine calls out ‘I wish you were my robot’ so I wouldn’t feel left out’. Love will also join Jacco Gardner on a North American tour this summer. Check out Calvin’s full list of tour dates below along with a stream of the new single. Super Future will be available on 6/16 via Arts & Crafts.

Calvin on Super Future:

“Super Future is a projection of my hopes & dreams, a snapshot into my life, a time capsule of work to reflect upon,” says Calvin. “My vision highway to self- discovery through song, love, and experience. Driving the dream through the confound paths of outside influences & expectations. Keeping a straight line through the darkness, with only one headlight and knowing that the strange, the beautiful and the unknown are nothing but my best friend.”
